The vertical tasting of our Alpasión Gran Malbec is one of our favourite experiences here at Alpasión. The first wine we ever bottled was the Alpasión Gran Malbec 2011 and we’ve produced this wine every year since. In fact, as our flagship wine, the Gran Malbec represents the majority of our production.
In the vertical tasting we invite our guests to taste every available vintage of the Gran Malbec starting with the youngest and working their way up to the oldest – the 2011. The idea here is that the older vintages will be more complex and nuanced, and guests can follow the progression of bottle age on the wine. But more than that, the vertical tasting gives our guests the chance to identify both the commonalities that exist in each of the vintages and their distinct characteristics. This is a fun tasting that gives our guests a real understanding of the factors that influence our wines from year to year.
And let’s not forget that you’ll be tasting some really delicious and award winning wines: Alpasión Gran Malbec 2011 was awarded 90 points by Robert Parker, Alpasión Gran Malbec 2012 was awarded a Gold Medal (95 points) by Decanter and Alpasión Gran Malbec 2013 was awarded 90 points by Wine Enthusiast.
